West Brom v Blackburn
Saturday, 4 February
Kick-off: 1500 GMT
Coverage on BBC Radio Five Live
West Brom's deadline day signing Nigel Quashie is set to make his debut, while Williams Martinez and Jan Kozak are also both available.
Ronnie Wallwork can play after a ban but Kevin Campbell and Steve Watson are doubtful with groin injuries.
Blackburn Rovers midfielder Robbie Savage is a doubt for the trip to The Hawthorns with an ankle problem.
Florent Sinama-Pongolle is struggling with flu but Craig Bellamy is nearing a return after three weeks out injured.
West Brom (from): Kuszczak, Albrechtsen, Davies, Martinez, Clement, Robinson, Watson, Greening, Johnson, Inamoto, Carter, Quashie, Kozak, Horsfield, Ellington, Campbell, Kirkland, Nicolson.
Blackburn (from): Friedel, Neill, Khizanishvili, Nelsen, Matteo, Bentley, Tugay, Savage, Pedersen, Kuqi, Enckelman, Emerton, Mokoena, Bellamy, Gray, Peter, Todd, Reid, Johnson, Sinama Pongolle.
West Brom manager Bryan Robson:
"If Steve Watson doesn't come through, Williams Martinez is the only defender I've got who is available apart from the back four lads who did so well at Charlton.
"He is probably going to have to be thrown into the deep end. I started with putting Martinez and Neil Clement together in training and they worked well together.
"Curtis Davies and Martinez worked together as well. We've looked at the options because it might be a case of that's what is going to happen."
# Blackburn manager Mark Hughes:
"There would be no point in having a great performance against a side like United if we allow ourselves to wallow in the glory.
"But I sense in the group of players I have that there is a real belief that we can have an outstanding season.
"If we can sustain our level of performance, we'll go very close to European qualification."
# WEST BROMWICH ALBION have just two wins in eight League matches, and in Blackburn take on the Premiership's form team. An away win could see Bryan Robson's side back in the relegation zone, and Rovers in the top five and eyeing a place in Europe - depending on other results.
# The Baggies stayed above the trap door with a point from a drab goalless draw at Charlton on Tuesday. They run out in front of the home faithful for the first time since succumbing to rock bottom Sunderland. Indeed Bryan Robson's side are in danger of suffering three home defeats on the trot. The reverse by the Wearsiders was preceded at the Hawthorns by a 1-2 loss to local rivals Aston Villa.
# Three of the five Premiership matches against Blackburn have been drawn, including last season's corresponding fixture. Kieran Richardson put the home side in front, but a second half equaliser from Brett Emerton dealt them a massive blow in their ultimately successful survival bid.
# BLACKBURN ROVERS were involved in the fourth seven-goal game of this Premiership season when they completed the double over Manchester United in their highest scoring match of the campaign, with the aid of a David Bentley hat-trick. Now they head for the West Midlands in search of a fourth consecutive away League victory, to take their unbeaten Premiership streak, home and away, to seven games.
# Victory at the Hawthorns, would be Rovers' 1,000th post war League win.
# Rovers are yet to lose a Premiership match at the Hawthorns, after one win and one draw. They're also looking to gain a sixth 'double' over Albion, having won at Ewood Park in October with Shefki Kuqi's first two goals for the club, accompanied by his trademark celebratory swallow dive. Rovers last claimed home and away maximum points over the Midlanders in the top division 43 years ago, in the 1962/63 season.
